Congratulations to Dave

Just to say I think Dave Shorts deserves congratulations on an almost faultless (as far as is humanly possible) transition from the old forum to the new.

I know there are a few little niggles we are discussing (and I am raising more than my fair share), but in the overall picture, those niggles are trivial (in fact, without exception, purely cosmetic) in comparison to all the things that could have gone wrong.

Well done Dave.

Agreed we are all very excited about the new forum and things have come along pretty smoothly and we have been kept informed very nicely and in a timely matter about questions which has been very nice indeed!

If you go to the write post page (not quick reply), press the additional options at the bottom, it gives you the option of uploading an image file. Browse for the file you want, then press upload. there should then be a list of image files you have uploaded so far. There should be a small 'insert image' link next to them all. If you press this some code to insert the image will be inserted at the cursor.

I should change Neils inserting images post

It looks good - much classier & more professional than the Snitz version.

I did actually wonder if my ' How to post piccys ' threads should be deleted. I have no qualm if you want to do that.
I did change the picture to reflect THIS forum. The only real advantage i can see of keeping it would be if someone wants to display a picture with a file size bigger than allowed using the new method.
